PARIS - French police have arrested four men suspected of belonging to a militant cell channeling fighters to Syria to join Islamist rebel groups battling President Bashar Assad's government, police sources said on Friday.

The suspects, aged between 22 and 35, were arrested in the Paris suburb of Vitry-sur-Seine by the DCRI internal security service following an investigation that started in mid-2012.

One 24-year-old man, suspected of organizing journeys to Syria, was in touch with several "fixers" who facilitated travel between Turkey and Syria, while another previously fought with an Islamist group in Syria, the sources said.

A court ordered the men to be jailed temporarily pending further questioning.
